Product Information

Discover how the WH-1000XM4 headphones blend Sony's most advanced noise canceling with exceptional sound quality and a range of smart features for an unrivaled listening experience.

Industry-leading noise cancelation

Industry-leading noise cancellation technology means you hear every word, note, and tune with incredible clarity, no matter your environment. These noise canceling headphones feature additional microphones that assist in isolating sound for a reduction of even more high and mid frequency sounds.

The technology that makes it happen

Dual noise sensor technology, featuring two microphones on each earcup, captures ambient noise and passes the data to the HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1. Using a new algorithm, the HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1 then applies noise-canceling processing in real time to a range of acoustic environments. Working together with a new Bluetooth® Audio SoC (System on Chip), it senses and adjusts to music and noise signals, as well as acoustic characteristics between the driver unit and ears, at over 700 times per second.

Optimizing noise canceling

To maximize noise-canceling performance, the WH-1000XM4 headphones incorporate two technologies: Personal Noise-Canceling Optimizer, designed specifically for you, and Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing, designed specifically for air travel.

Ambient Sound Control

Adjust ambient sound with the Sony | Headphones Connect app to cancel noise while still allowing essential sounds, like overhead announcements, through when you're listening on the move.

Wireless freedom, premium sound

LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional BLUETOOTH® audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.

Sound you can believe in

A built-in analog amplifier integrated in the HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1 realizes an unmatched signal-to-noise ratio for low distortion and exceptional sound quality for portable devices. Powerful 1.57" drivers, with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms, make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz.

Real-time restoration of all your compressed files

Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) co-developed with Sony Music Studios Tokyo, DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognizing instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.

Smart listening technology to enhance your listening

The WH-1000XM4 headphones use an array of smart technologies to create a seamless, hands-free listening experience. For example, simply start speaking to automatically pause your music in Speak-to-Chat, or enjoy adaptive playback thanks to the proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors that detect whether your headphones are being worn or not.

For everyday convenience, just Speak-to-Chat

As soon as you speak to someone, Speak-to-Chat automatically stops the music and lets in ambient sound so you can conduct a conversation—handy if you want to keep your headphones on, or your hands are full. Based on Precise Voice Pickup Technology, this smart feature uses five microphones built into your headphones and advanced audio signal processing to recognize and react to your voice. And once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically.

Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to whatever you do

Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that senses where you are and what you're doing, then adjusts ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience.

Headphones that react to you

Proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors in your headphones can detect whether you're wearing them or not, then adapt playback accordingly to help save battery power.

Wear all day in total comfort

WH-1000XM4 headphones blend sophisticated style with exceptional comfort. Super-soft, pressure-relieving ear pads in foamed urethane evenly distribute pressure and increase ear/pad contact for a stable fit. And with a lighter-weight design, you'll barely notice you're wearing them.

All day power and quick charging

With a huge 30 hours of battery life, you'll have enough power even for long trips. And if you need to top up in a hurry, you can get 5 hours' worth of charge after just 10 minutes with the optional AC adapter.

Effortless operation

From controlling your music to accessing your voice assistant or making hands-free calls—with the WH-1000XM4, it couldn't be easier.

So good that I want a pair for myself
Got them for my wife’s birthday. I tried out other high end headphones like Yamaha, Shure, Sennheiser, and others. Overall these were the best overall. Most comfortable, best sound quality, nice case with accessories. Noise canceling is very impressive. Put your hand on a speaker cup to hear the outside world and leave it alone to nearly hear your own heartbeat. $300 is totally worth it, but once and buy right.

Solid, but I'm going with Bose
So I was really excited to get Sony's 1000xm4's. Coming from over 10 years of listening to my Bose QC15s, I was definitely up for an upgrade and was looking forward to hearing what some new innovation might sound like. I read all of the reviews, and it seemed like the Sony's kept coming out slightly ahead of the Bose 700s. The Sony's had all the features, seemed to have a slight leg up on performance, and an occasional lower price point. Why not try?

When they came, I was impressed - certainly better than what I was used to, but still not totally blowing me away. For grins, I went and got the Bose 700s...after all, if I'm going to drop 300 beans on a pair of headphones (that I will hopefully listen to for the next 10 years) I want to be certain I made the right choice.

I've gotta say, the 700s hit the mark for me. They were more comfortable (I wear these all day for work) and the were noticeably better performers. Stellar noice canceling, better clarity, richer tones, and a wide open soundstage. Just what you would expect for $300+ headphones. I make out more of the individual instruments than I could on the Sony's which really seemed to fall flat to my ears.

Sure the Sony's have a longer battery life, but honestly, I'm going to charge these every night anyway. When I had both of these sitting side-by-side, I kept picking up the 700s first to listen to. They were just that much more EXCITING to listen to.

Am I knocking the Sony's? Hell no, they're solid headphones. But if I'm going to spend this much on a set of cans, I'm wanting to put something on that makes me want to listen till the end of the song before I take them off...and maybe even squeeze in one more track for good measure. They're just that good. I'm going Bose.

The best so far
This is the 3rd headphones I have, first I got is the Beats studio wireless and the next one is the Beats solo3, the musicality is so far the same or should I say better than Beats, bass and sharpness of sound is good, noise cancelling is very outstanding and ambient sound with adaptive sound is extra ordinary, I never tested the high resolution sound because its asking me to subscribe, but as of now its a 5 star for me.
